Nov. 6, 2017 – Hartford, WI – Congratulations to Hartford Union High School girls tennis coach Andy Andress who was selected as the Wisconsin High School Tennis Coaches Association Coach of the Year for the 2017 season.
From the WHSTCA: “Many of the reasons Andy was nominated have nothing to do with team records or even team success in terms of wins or losses. Andy’s team had an 11 and 9 overall dual record. His varsity squad finished 6th in the 10 team newly aligned North Shore Conference, a marked improvement over last year’s 7th place finish in the now defunct 8-team Little Ten Conference.
Hartford sent three players to sectionals and scored a third place finish at the No. 3 singles spot. Andy’s team, as usual, showed great growth and improvement over the course of the season. He was also chosen for his guidance to assist a player facing a serious medical issue and for his leadership to help design, schedule and revise bylaws for the new look of the North Shore Conference.”
According to Steve Anderson from Slinger, “He is an ambassador for high school tennis and puts the best interests of kids first while providing outstanding leadership at meetings that set policy and guide play at both the conference and sub sectional levels.”
HUHS Athletic Director, Scott Helms added, “Being named Division 1 Coach of the Year by his peers is a credit to Andy’s leadership among tennis coaches.”
Our Girls Tennis team is lucky to be under the guidance of Coach Andress and we appreciate all that he does for the HUHS Girls Tennis team and the sport as a whole. Congratulations to Coach Andy Andress on being named the Coach of the Year.
